Legoland Florida, Winter Haven, Florida, USA
Okeechobee Rampage - Cute and rather fun. We didn't expect much from this kiddy ride, but it was cool.
Triple Hurricane - I rode it three times trying to find the best seats. I love camel humps, but it wasn't running fast enough to give good airtime. I think the back row is best, but the difference is marginal.
Swampthing - this is the first kiddy invert I've ridden. It's fun, but still a kids coaster.
Cypress Garden's has an amazing collection of flat rides, almost all manufactured by Zamperla. Our favorites were the Thunderbolt (which is a cable-hoisted tower with a slow-ascent and a fast-no-warning-descent drop dower) and Disko (similar to Rockin' Tug, but riders sit motorcycle-style facing out). The Yo-Yo seemed fast, as did the Soaring Scooters. Dizzy Dragon's, Gardon Gondolas and Storm Surge all super-dizzying spinning rides.
We had lots of fun, but it was damn cold. Unfortunately, the food was too.
Next time, we'll have to catch the waterski show...
I was just down in Florida last week (not a vacation, a personal family matter), and a couple of the days, the temps didn't crack 60 degrees but it felt warm to me being from Chicago.
My favorite MJ tune: "Billie Jean" which I have been listening to alot now. RIP MJ.
A day at the park is what you make it!
What do you consider "damn cold"?
That's easy....frost! ;)
Thanks for the TR, I too was impressed by the intensity at which the flats were run...
bill, had a hard time ending that not a preposition with...:)
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
temperatures weren't expecting to get out of the 30's on Sunday.
Burr, that doesn't sound like Super Bowl temperatures to me!
Cypress Gardens was still warmer than Ottawa (-30), but I prefer visiting theme parks when I don't have to wear a jacket. *** Edited 2/1/2005 4:03:50 AM UTC by greatwhitenorth***
